The Villain Wants to Live Quietly chapter 104

Chapter 12. Changing story (6)

Although it was a long-awaited meeting, the two women did not have much difficulty in recognizing each other.

It may be because it was a meeting between beautiful women who were so outstanding that even as women, each other’s existence was imprinted in their heads.

“It’s a wonderful coincidence.”

With a slight smile, Adrine put a lump of sugar into the teacup and stirred it with a spoon.

At Adrine’s invitation to take a look around since she will guide you to Alteon herself, the three of them are now in a nearby teahouse instead of the Wistenbach family’s mansion.

By the way, it’s sugar in black tea.

I thought it was a rather unusual taste, but Emilia didn’t care.

After all, taste is just a difference of individual likes and dislikes.

“Iknow, right. How did Princess Adrine come to that place?”

“It’s a place where I often stop by for offering flowers. Today, as I came out to change my mood, I visited with both company and company.”

“Come to think of it, the old man at the flower shop said it, but it must have been true.”

“Ehehehe… Somehow, it seems like rumors have spread, so I’m embarrassed.”

Her figure, scratching her cheeks and laughing cowardly, was quite different from the impression Emilia remembered.

Although it was difficult to understand the character of Adrine because the time we had a proper conversation at that time was short, I thought that her outward impression and behavior had changed considerably.

how to say To put it bluntly, the Adrine she remembers was a more distant person.

It didn’t feel like she was rejecting others outright like Emilia in her prime, but there was an atmosphere that implicitly told her not to come any closer.

‘I wonder if something has changed like me.’

I don’t know much about her, so I can’t really ask questions.

However, if it was a positive change, I wanted to send congratulatory applause inside.

clap clap clap

It was as if such a small voice resonated in Emilia’s head.

“Anyway, I didn’t know that the Soga lord of the Ipretz family would come with the princess. I’ve heard that you two got engaged.”

“Yes. Originally, I planned to go alone, but my fiancé said that he had a relationship with him and wanted to celebrate together. If I have offended you in any way, I apologize.”

At Ludwig’s words, Adrine hurriedly waved her hand.

I was a little surprised, but not to the extent that it was rude.

Rather, I was just grateful. The fact that they came all this way together without forgetting such a short relationship.

“You two get along very well. Do you have any plans to get married?”

“That, well. I think it’s still a little early, but… … .”

At the unexpected question, Ludwig felt his heart grow cold.

Even so, before leaving the Bayern family this time, Julia had talked about marriage in a casual tone, and the memory of that time came to mind.

In addition to that, I was very concerned about my fiancé, who looked at me with eyes full of anticipation as soon as the word marriage was mentioned.

“It’s not something I would say as I haven’t even had a wedding ceremony yet… I think it’s okay to move forward a little.”

“Yeah, that’s right. Thanks for the advice.”

How come he is receiving marriage counseling when he came to congratulate the other person’s marriage?

Still, it was impossible to refute in front of Adrine, who gave her serious advice, so Ludwig nodded with a firm face.

“Are you serious about marrying me?”

“Of course, isn’t it? You’re not just a fiance in name.”

“Huh, that’s enough. You don’t have to think too fast.”

Emilia took Ludwig’s hand and gently leaned on it.

Normally, I wouldn’t express affection so openly in front of other people, but maybe there was a change of heart. Or maybe it just means it feels good.

Ludwig laughed, thinking that good is good.

The person in charge was smiling happily, saying that this situation was not uncomfortable, but that it was a good time to see it.

“I am sorry. Princess Adrine. Today, your fiancé is showing special affection.”

“It’s nice to see what. When I was with him in front of other people, there were times when I just wanted to show off.”

show off

I don’t think Emilia would have done it for that reason, but it was understandable to some extent.

Likewise, there were times when he wanted to show off to others that this woman was his lover by holding hands while walking together on the street.

In this respect, men and women may be similar.

“The tea is very tasty. It’s a taste I haven’t tasted at Lutentia.”

“I’m glad that’s the case. Even so, I’m the type to go outside often, so I’m quicker than anyone else when it comes to Alteon. I am also good at food.”

Is it a foodie?

For some reason, it was completely different from the image of Adrine that Ludwig had in mind, so he felt a sense of disparity.

Adrine Wistenbach, who appeared in the novel, was closer to a more calm and quiet feeling.

‘If I had to point that out, there’s not just one or two things I want to ask.’

Above all, the most questionable was how she had become a white-haired woman after boasting of black hair that was so beautiful that she was referred to as black silk in the original work.

I don’t think there would be such a dyeing technique in this world, so maybe there was a story.

“… Behi? Ludwig?”


“I have already called four times. Are you tired after all?”

“Oh, no. It’s okay, don’t worry. Emilia.”

It seems that he lost sight of Emilia’s voice because he was deep in thought.

He gently stroked the hair of his lover who was looking at him with a worried face, reassured him, and shook his head slightly.

It seems that he thought that the travel poison accumulated on the way to Alteon had not yet been resolved.

Even if he worried about her, he stopped laughing at the situation where he was worried about her.

“If you’re tired, why don’t you go to the mansion right now? If you don’t have a schedule, Alteon will guide you tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, Adrine, who was watching this scene, made an offer.

Since he himself would have to be confined to the mansion for the next few days anyway, he would have a chance to go outside for the good cause of guiding guests.

However, Ludwig, who thought this would be a nuisance to her, tried to euphemistically refuse.

If only it hadn’t been for Emilia’s words that followed.

“You don’t have to… … .”

“Then may I ask you a favor?”


To think that Emilia, who, like herself, hates to cause trouble to others, would accept such an offer.

When I looked at her with a slightly surprised face, a smiling face caught my eye as if it couldn’t be helped.

“For now, let me accept the favor. Now that I think about it, I haven’t gotten over my travels yet, so it’s going to be difficult to look around this place today.”

That’s what he said, but he must have accepted the offer instead because he was worried.

He probably also had in mind that Ludwig’s personality would not allow him to accept such an offer.

Realizing this, he belatedly smiled lightly and nodded his head.

“Then let’s do it. I’m sorry for bothering you. Emilia.”

“You’re welcome.”

I thought that if I ever had to feign illness later, I shouldn’t do it in front of her.

Perhaps he would bring all the names in the world and examine himself.

I was grateful for the excessive worry, but it was also a moment when I felt a little heavy.

That’s how we arrived at Wistenbach, guided by Adrine.

The reaction was not too surprising, as the family members knew that they were due to arrive within this week.

“Welcome. It’s called Fendrick, who is in charge of the family head of the Wistenbach family. You’ve worked hard to come a long way.”

“Thank you for the undeserved welcome. Sir Wistenbach.”

“A name is enough. That’s why you don’t get confused with the rest of the family.”

Fendrick’s attitude toward the two was gentle and respectful.

Responding to his greeting, Ludwig took out the letter he had received from Stefan and held it out to him.

At first, Fendrick reacted a little surprised, but he quickly smiled when he saw the seal on the letter and recognized who sent it.

“How is Sir Stefan?”

“Yeah. I’m sure Sir Fendrick will ask about it, so he asked me to tell him not to worry and stay healthy.”

“Did you see right through there? I just ate one of these.”

Fendrick opened the letter with a delightful smile at Emilia’s answer.

Then, after going through the contents written on the paper from top to bottom, he put it back into the envelope with a meaningless smile.

“I got the letter right. It must have been hard coming a long way, but I will guide you to your room, so you can rest quickly. It won’t be too late to talk about the unfinished story at dinner.”

“Thank you for the favor.”

The two of them bowed their heads and left the room following the staff’s guidance.

As soon as they came out into the hallway, what they saw was Adrine being dragged by someone by the ear.

The servant standing next to him screamed like a cow being led to a slaughterhouse, clearing his throat and refreshing the atmosphere.

‘What’s going on.’

The person holding her ear is Gladia, the mistress of the Wistenbach family whom she just met.

He was just curious as he didn’t know the story behind Adrine’s actions today.

If he had known this, he would not have wished for condolences.

“sorry. The room is this way.”

The woman in maid’s uniform did her duty with a calm face, as if she was trying to cover up the situation that just happened.

However, do the two of them know that a thin smile was engraved on the corner of her mouth?

‘Let’s flirt.’

Her name is Medell.

She was her exclusive handmaid who had suffered a lot today thanks to the rude owner.
